PVR INOX Pictures today announced the premiere of ‘The Iron Claw’ in India on February 9th. The film is written and directed by renowned filmmaker Sean Durkin and stars Zac Efron, Jeremy Allen White, Harris Dickinson, Maura Tierney, Holt McCallany, and Stanley Simons in the significant roles. Named after Von Erichs’ signature move, ‘The Iron Claw’ is a biographical sports drama film based on the life of professional wrestler Kevin Von Erich and the Von Erich family. It is a true story of the inseparable Von Erich brothers, who made history in the intensely competitive world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s. Through tragedy and triumph, under the shadow of their domineering father and coach, the brothers seek larger-than-life immortality on the biggest stage in sports. Fans can secure their PVR INOX tickets across all the ticketing platforms now!
‘The Iron Claw’ unfolds with Fritz Von Erich (Holt McCallany), a prominent wrestler from the 60s era. As his sons, Kevin (Zac Efron) and David (Harris Dickinson), reached a certain age, Fritz introduced them to the wrestling ring, extending his coaching to include Mike (Stanley Simons) as well. Kerry (Jeremy Allen White), who was the youngest sibling, on the other hand, found his way to wrestling when his aspirations for the 1980 Olympics were thwarted by the U.S. boycott. Director Sean Durkin believes ‘The Iron Claw’ is not about grief and pain, it is about the absence of grief and what can happen when people refuse to look at their pain.
Kamal Gianchandani, CEO of PVR Pictures Limited & PVR Limited, expressed, “We at PVR are thrilled to announce the much-anticipated release of the heart-pounding biographical drama, ‘The Iron Claw,’ which will captivate our Indian audience. Director Sean Durkin has beautifully captured the essence of this emotional story, along with the complexities of generational trauma, familial expectations, and the bonds between the Erich brothers. The film illustrates the struggles young men face when confronted with societal norms and patriarchy, making it both relevant and relatable in today’s day and age. We strongly believe it’s essential to bring such stories to the forefront, and we’re honored to be part of sharing this important tale with audiences in India.”
Talking about the film’s inspiration and its emotional story, director Sean Durkin stated, “Drawing on the tradition of films that explore the tightrope of glory, loss, and American masculinity, I’ve been inspired by Raging Bull and The Deer Hunter. The Iron Claw is a movie about family, fathers and sons, brothers. It is about finding love and learning to love yourself for who you are. It is about battling against this narrow idea of what makes a man. It is about chasing glory and the illusions of success. It is about generational strife and questioning the lens with which we are conditioned to see the world in order to find a hopeful new future. The Iron Claw is a celebration of self-discovery, camaraderie, brotherhood, and the glory days of territorial wrestling in the U S of A.”
